  • Since you're such a fan of speed skating, I though you might like to know that my Perl code and I played a small* part in helping Catriona LeMay Doan [catrionalemaydoan.com] win her Gold medal at the 2002 Olympics. She came to the aerospace lab I work at to test different suits [nrc-cnrc.gc.ca]. She was very easy to work with; no "I'm a star" attitude, unlike the two male skaters that were here at the same time.

    * The word "small" is here used as a short form for "almost infinitesimally insignificant compared to many other factors"

  • All this is really unfair. For those of us who are interested in cycling or speed-skating, I think you owe it to us to translate these things. After all, it was only very recently that Tim Krabbé's De renner was translated into English, and wow, would I like to read more of that. But I'm too lazy to learn Dutch.
    • You think that's unfair? What's really unfair is that we have to pay a lot more for English language books than US or UK people. And we have an extremely limited selection to choose from.

      If you fix that, I'll translate the book ;-)
